As I have said in all of my responses to interested parties. We breed and compete high level show jumpers and A-circuit hunters and Encore is "a bonus colt". His mother was one of four imported Thoroughbred mares that we received gratis the first week in December to use as recipient mares. Encore's movement in my opinion has too much knee action to be a hunter and although his damline suggests that he may be a very good jumper prospect, we must focus our resources on the colts that we have specifically bred for the hunter and/or jumper rings.
Encore has absolutely no behavioral issue and has never been injured. There is nothing either in his past or current upbringing that would impede his progress.
I think that Encore will flourish in whatever job he is given, whether it be an eventer, jumper, or even a trail/pleasure horse.
